Rise and Shine 10/19 – Mini-Muffin Advent calendar, 60% off Jo-Ann Fabrics

Good morning. It’s finally Friday!

Okay, forgive me, this is insanely premature, but I spotted this cute Advent calendar idea in the November issue of my Family Fun magazine and I couldn’t help but share. It’s made with a mini-muffin pan. Here’s a scan of the Mini-Muffin Advent project (credit: Family Fun, November 2012). so you can make one at home, if you’d like. You could use this for any kind of count down – birthdays, trips, special celebrations. . .what do you think?


Some new coupons were released yesterday that I didn’t get around to sharing – including $0.75 off any Welch’s Grape Juice! There is also one for $0.50 off any Carmex conditioner. And one off $1 off Jergen’s lotion.

Jo-Ann Fabrics has a new coupon out for 60% off any item (valid through Saturday)!

  1. The space needle deal is for Sunday not Saturday. Saturday would be so much more convenient.

  2. I love the mini muffin pan advent calendar! Thanks for sharing.
